Have you ever wondered how geologists reconstruct the Earth’s history? Join geologist Steve Dornbos as he takes you on a journey through geologic time showing us how fossils are formed, preserved and become more complex as faunal succession occurs. Learn about superposition, index fossils and more. And then play “The Wheel of Fossils” game to learn how evolutionary changes took place over the past three billion years.
How do we know what dinosaurs really looked like? How do we know where to find dinosaur fossils? Or, as geologist Emily Giffin asks in “On the Trail of the Thick-Skulled Dinosaur,” how do you find something when you don’t know what you’re looking for? In answering these questions, she brings fresh focus to a well-known subject and also demonstrates the process of scientific inquiry in a spirited, informative and accessible manner.
